    Title: “Impaired immune response of CD24+CD38hi regulatory B cells in patients with acute dengue infection”

    Speaker: Vinit Upasani, PhD Student

    Abstract: 

    Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease caused by dengue virus (DENV) endemic to more than 100 countries with 390 million dengue infections per year. Humoral immune responses during primary and secondary DENV infections are well investigated. However, the impact of DENV infection on B cell subsets and their antibody-independent functions are not well documented. Through this study, we aimed to define the distribution of B cell subsets in the acute phase of DENV infection and characterize the effect of DENV infection on B cell functions such as differentiation into memory and plasma cells and cytokine production.
